Blood Bowl and Steam

Well, Blood Bowl (Games Workshop, Cyanide Studios and Focus Home Interactive) was “released” on Steam November 25th, 2009 in the US. Released being quoted since I am still getting an error when trying to launch it.

“This game is currently unavailable. Please try again at another time.”

The only thing that chaps me worse than not getting what I pay for is not getting what I pay for AND not getting any support either.

Database Server Build

More for my records than anyone elses. Still someone may find some use for this information.

I started off by doing a standard network install of Debian Woody. After that I installed ssh and got to work.

Before doing anything else, I create a “poor man’s” disk mirror. This probably isn’t the best solution but it works for my needs. The first thing we need to do here is take a look at the current partition info:
